PUV Modernization Program advances in Tacloban
Another group of modern Public Utility Vehicles will be seen running on the roads of Tacloban as Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez led the launching ceremony of ten (10) units of modern PUV’s (JMC Co Star N6 PUV), which is a project of the LTFRB Region 8 and the Northern Barangays Transport Cooperative (NORBATCO), at the Rizal Plaza, yesterday, September 6, 2021.
As DOTr’s PUV Modernization Program aims to provide safe, comfortable, and environment- friendly transport with predictable travel time, Mayor Romualdez is positive that commuting from the northern barangays to the city will no longer be risky, difficult, and boring with the activation of these air conditioned and wifi-ready modern PUV’s.
Present during the launching ceremony were LTFRB R8 Regional Director Gualberto Gualberto, Land Bank Tacloban Department Manager Restituta Ilagan, JMC Philippines Representative Chan Perto, NORBATCO Chairman Florante Otida, CDAR8 Regional Director Giovani Platero, and Punong Barangay Albert Eviota.
Meanwhile, DOTR Secretary Arthur Tugade addressed the public thru a video message played during the program.
